Palm Beach County Deputy was Reported Drunkenly Threatening to Kill Men

In West Palm Beach, Officer Jerald Alderman was arrested following an incident that involved a threat towards three men.

Alderman was bonded out of jail this Friday morning as he was seen rushing to his vehicle and avoiding questions.

The incident included video proof where Alderman was seen off-duty, drunk and threatening to kill a group of men on the morning of October 12.

This scene took place in the 300 block of Banyan Blvd after Alderman claimed the group of men hit his Porsche.

According to WPTV, the victims could smell the liquor on Alderman’s breath as he angrily banged his gun against their vehicle and pointed it at each of them.

According to another victims statement, Alderman said he would kill all of them and put a bullet in their heads.

Police confirmed the victims statements that Alderman smelled of liquor and was clearly drunk at the time.

As a result, the deputy was arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm and using a firearm under the influence of alcohol with a $40,000 bond.

Alderman is now on administrative leave with pay, must adhere to random drug and alcohol testing and is unable to possess any weapons.
